Hunger, The: Season 1 for DVD
In THE HUNGER, demons, vampires, and fantasy run wild in a mesmerizing cross between 'The Twilight Zone' and 'Tales from the Crypt.' The half-hour episodes feature horrific stories, with themes of self-destructive desire and obsession. From cannibalism to uncontrollable lust, from vampires to evil spirits, the one common thread is a pervasive sense of eroticism. 'The Hunger' originally aired for two seasons (1997-1999) on Showtime in the U.S., and took its name from the 1983 urban vampire film starring David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon. THE HUNGER: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON also includes the original 'making of' segment - an introduction to the second season with David Bowie, who replaced Stamp as host in 1999.
